Gotta strike while the iron is hot! Or rather, strike before the revitalized Santa Clara area in the Bay Area becomes completely overpriced and unaffordable!

Today, my investing partners and I closed on our second real estate deal together. This property is a [click to continue…]

Part 1: Japan Trip Report (August 08-10, 2014)

in Travel Updates


Prior to this vacation in Japan, I had never before been to Asia. It’s funny, when I look back and think about it… Prior to graduating university in 2007, my high school buddies and I were all planning to make a trip to Japan as a sort of post-graduation celebration for everyone. Unfortunately, the timing just never worked out and we ultimately ended up scraping the [click to continue…]

I was of the country for most of August, so this was a really good trial run to see how passive the rental properties really are! Since I was too busy out having fun, I basically entrusted everything to my fabulous tenants in the [click to continue…]

Comments Section Not Working (September 05, 2014)

by FI Fighter on September 5, 2014

in Blog Update

Update: 9/05: Issue resolved! Needed to install a Thesis 1.85 patch to get the comments to show up again…

I updated to WordPress 4.0 this morning, and for whatever reason, it looks like that update caused the comments section to disappear. :(

I can still see the comments in my dashboard view, but they appear to be hidden on every post (both comment and reply).

Is anyone else witnessing this with 4.0? Any ideas on how to fix it? If so, please shoot me an e-mail, or leave a comment. You won’t be able to see your comment, but I will through the dashboard…

This is a bit of a nuisance, so I’m hoping it’s an easy fix. Otherwise, I’ll have to dedicate some time this weekend to fixing this… First step, disable all plugins and see if that does anything… I’ll give it a shot later tonight after work.

Sorry for the inconvenience everyone!


Exciting News: A New Door Opens! (September 05, 2014)

in Career


Ok, enough beating around the bush… I have some very exciting news to share with everyone, so I’m just going to lay it all out there. At the beginning of this year, I made the conscious decision to attempt early financial independence at the ripe young age of 30. I had grown extremely weary of the rat race and wanted to desperately [click to continue…]



Time flies when you’re out having fun! Well, that and when you have ambitious partners who will work aggressively trying to close a property while you’re out of town (thanks so much team!). ;)

The dust has settled (rather quickly), and Rental Property Side Hustle #1 has been fully funded! The team and I received the keys last Thursday night, and we’ve been working expeditiously trying to get the property up to stuff in [click to continue…]
